Christmas Around the House

 

Capturing Christmas around the house was so much fun this year; here are a few more images I can't resist sharing.

 

Mannequin-at-christmas

Since I have no place to put her, this gal is part of the family.

 

Bird-on-sari

An Indian sari gift from my husband.

 

Christmas-cypress

Lemon cypress, a favorite Christmas treat. More on this later.

 

Amarylis

The thrill of an amaryllis opening a little more each day.

 

Judy's-cookies

My sister's lovely cookie gifts all the way from Oregon.

 

Oneita's-doll

Fairy doll, knitted by Pauli, for daughter Oneita.

 

Ornament-gift-wra[

Favorite gift wrap- more on this later too.

 

Plum

This exquistie plum is actually a Christmas cracker! No I don't care what's inside, I won't open it. This handmade beauty comes from Tail of the Yak in Berkeley. 

 

Once I knew only darkness and stillness . . . my life without past or future . . . but a little word from the fingers of another fell into my hand that clutched at emptiness, and my heart leaped to the rapture of living.

~ Helen Keller
